Aerial Responder Discussion

I recommend Pontiff of Blight over Agent of Masks as does so much more. Brion Stoutarm only works great with Wurmcoil Engine and Solemn Simulacrum, so I recommend repeatable creature steal in the form of Captivating Crew or similar to optimize Brion. If you want the repeatable free drain from Agent of Masks still, I recommend Palace Siege for the versatility of it. It is a shame that you do not have Felidar Sovereign in your deck when it revolves around life gain. Unless your playgroup doesn't allow instant wins, you should include it. Gisela, the Broken Blade is way better than Aerial Responder, as the first strike on Gisela is amazing. Rhox Faithmender is amazing with all the life gain going on and has lifelink as well. I would say it is better than Vampire Nighthawk unless you want the nighthawk for it's creature type. Feel free to ignore anything outside your price range. +1

I like what youre trying to do here bmagicguy. Lifelink is a pretty solid strategy right now because fast aggrieved decks are super popular. So if you want this build to work I would suggest having a lot of small, maybe high toughness creatures with lifelink to flood the board and block with. Drawing cards is also good so something like Shapers' Sanctuary will deter opponents removal and draw for you. Green and white allows you to be pretty tricksy with untapping and protection. So if you want to survive to the point with your herald you could maybe add things like Glory-Bound Initiate for lifegain, or Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor for card draw and ramp. Cards like Prepare give you a surprise big lifelink blocker after your opponents attack you then you can use the back half of it to fight a creature with something you want to take damage like your raptors! Aerial Responder is great, but Im not sold on Aetherstorm Roc, maybe its a place to put in raptors. Exemplar of Strength, Inspiring Cleric and Bishop's Soldier CAN be good but I dont think its the build youre going for so the glory bounds could go there. Majestic Myriarch is awesome with all your lifelinkers but Id suggest putting in some more creatures with valuable keywords. Adorned Pouncer will give it double strike and you can bring it back on turn 5 as a 4/4 double strike! As a finisher, in case you dont get Victory's Herald, theres Appeal which basically lets you swing in for a huge attack unblocked if you pair the cards together and you can still block any attacks on the next turn. But I love green white in standard and if you have any questions or ideas feel free to speak up! Hope Ive given you some ideas

Attune with Aether is banned, so now the mana looks horrible. Planning to go t2 Gifted Aetherborn into t3 Aerial Responder and still want to play Verdurous Gearhulk without the fixing, nor the energy from attune to fix with Aether Hub... It's just not gonna work out very often... The mana is simply too bad.
The deck is sweet besides that though. If I were you (I'm not but if this was my deck I guess...), I would go to 4 Chimeras, add some protection like Blossoming Defense and then cut a bit of either the black or the white cards (prferably the black cards imo).

Hey I run 2 Authority of the Consuls in my horse deck and it's wild! I get horses for days. Queen's Commission is also good for quick vampire tokens with lifelink. and finally Aerial Responder for easy life-gain in the air!
